Chris Evans has nothing but love for his ex-girlfriend and “Gifted” co-star Jenny Slate.
After meeting on the set of the drama in 2015, the pair began a nine-month relationship before parting ways earlier this year. Despite their split, the actor still has fond memories of their time working together.
“It kind of felt like, right away,” the actor tells ET Canada’s Matte Babel of their on-set chemistry. “The first time I met Jenny, instantly you’re like, ‘This person’s gonna be my closest friend.'”
In the film, Evans stars as the guardian of his mathematically-gifted niece, played by Mckenna Grace – who says the actor’s parental instincts on screen weren’t just for show.
“I think he’s gonna make a great dad someday,” the 10-year-old gushes. “He’s so sweet, he’s so kind, he does a lot of great things for children and he does a lot of great things for charity.”
